Chezza Is Concerned Her Accent Will Alienate US Audiences!

| Filed under: Music MinuteCherylX Factor


Well, this is just silly!

Although Cheryl Cole is expected to break into American mainstream now that she's allegedly signed a deal to be on the judges panel of the stateside version of X Factor, she's apparently concerned that her thick Geordie accent will be a turn-off to audiences, and wants to take elocution lessons!

A source explains:

"Cheryl was thrilled to accept the offer, but she is terrified it could all go horribly wrong, and has said: 'what if nobody likes me?' She thinks being hated in a country like the US could kill her career overnight. Having elocution lessons is a real prospect for Cheryl now. She's proud of her roots and doesn't want to change how she speaks, but she accepts that if the Americans don't understand her, they will quickly turn on her."

Although the lessons aren't an awful idea, don't go stomping out your heritage, bb!

It's not like it's terribly difficult to understand you! And we think that your accent is lovely!

Just another trait that will separate you from the rest of the music scene here in the USA!

Be yourself, just like you always have, and it will surely work out as is!

    She is fucking hot!!!! I don't care if she clicked and clicked like one of those starving kids in Africa do. I'd do her.

  2. 2

    The Beatles never had to change the way they speak.

  3. 3

    I live in the UK, and I'm annoyed with her accent…she just needs to learn how to say My instead of ME….So some lessons wouldn't hurt!

  4. 4

    She should just lip synch like Asslee Simpson

  5. 5

    she should be more concerned about how the audience will react if she blatantly keeps her favourites in despite them forgetting lyrics, collapsing on stage and cheating on their contract! She isn't a very fair judge!

  6. 6

    Once in a while I have trouble understanding her, especially if she's going on and perhaps not thinking as much about what she is saying. I would think if she just focused on some words she might have trouble clearly annunciating, that would be fine. There is no reason to change her whole accent/way of speaking.

  7. 7

    Her accent isn't even that strong compared to alot of Geordie accents! I'm a Geordie and whenever I've been to America people have had no problems understanding me, I just sometimes confuse them by using some Geordie slang words so as long as she doesn't come out with these she should be fine. I really hope she does well in the US.

  8. 8

    I have never had trouble understanding her and think her accent is gorgeous!!

  9. 9

    ROFL please, Most americans have no idea who this girl is. American Idol is so 5 years ago. Xfactor was its retarded cousin that never took off.

  10. 10

    Uh…get speech therapy if it concerns you that much!

  11. open says – reply to this


    huh?!?! isn't she English? like… let's say.. Elton John? Rod Stewart? The Beatles?! half the singers out there?! lordy. Don't worry, Ms. Cole.. we'll understand you. rolls eyes.

  12. GG78 says – reply to this


    Who cares about this no singin' ass bitch !????!!!! She is horrid !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. 13

    Who the hell cares about her accent? An accent's and accent; I can't understand hillbillies, and lots can't understand cajuns. So again who cares!

  14. 14

    This isn't true cheryl has said in an interview eventhough i would love to go on the US x factor. I don't want to loose my accent as it is a big part of her.I find her easy to understand and can't wait to have her here as she is my favourite x factor judge and seems like one of the most down to eath celebs.

  15. 15

    Her accent isn't very strong, my great Uncle was a Geordie and I could barely understand a word he said. I hardly think an accent is going to alienate anyone with half a brain.

  16. DJay says – reply to this


    Okay, can someone pleaseeeeeee tell me why Perez calls her Chezza? What the hell does it mean?

  17. 17

    I can understand cheryl fine. An cheryl is going to be great on the US X factor ater watching the uk x factor on the internet i couldn't imagine watching the US version without her in it she is lovely.

  18. 18

    If I were her I'd worry more about her conviction of aggrivated assault on a black toilet attendant who she called 'a jigaboo'. Don't you?

  19. 19

    are you kidding?…americans are suckers for british accents..i'm not too worried about it.

  20. 20

    i'm american but i don't think she should change her accent at all. i think it's great! i have no trouble understanding her. plus, she's absolutely stunning i don't think anyone is gonna be focusing on her accent.

  21. 21

    what i wanna know is what accent does Lauren, from the Catherine Tate show, uses? i love that accent.

  22. 22

    Mrs cloud : why would you lie. She was convicted of assault when she was a teenager but the jury stated the toliet attendant had lied about racism to make more money when she sold her story to the press. People who were there when they had a figt stood up in court and said the toliet attendant was lying.So i don't understand why you are trying to make out like she is some terrible person. The thing i like about cheryl is she has learnt from her mistakes.

  23. 23

    im american and live in Europe. wtf is she talking about? you would have to be stupid if you didnt understand what she was saying. it's not like she has some thick country accent. it will be very disappointing if she chooses to change the way she speaks. she will end up alienating her original fanbase. no one over here wants to see some brit kissing ass for americans and acting as though the accent isnt good enough.

  24. 24

    Knock this "Chezza" crap off! It's far more grating than the accent.

  25. 25


  26. 26

    hello? her accent is one of the reasons why i love her. don't change it!

  27. 27

    Eventhough i am a brit if cheryl is going to be on the US x factor i am going to have to start watching the US one instead of the UK one as it would be fairly dull without her. As for her accent she has said before she does not want to loose her geordie aceent as she is proud of being a geordie. The Uk press keep going on about how americans will never get her accent but she has plenty of american friends. Usually when a "SOURCE" SAYS somthing t means it is made up.

  28. 28

    i thought people liked accents? i love listening to someone talk who has one!

  29. 29

    Pffft… this tart is famous for no reason. Can't sing. Shit songs. Remember when she was all over the press a few years back for bashing and racist taunts against a bathroom attendant in the UK???? Yeah, lovely lovely girl she is. Deserves all she got from that man-ho she married…

  30. 30

    absolutely right, girl. besides that, that is the market protectionism. you might do good for a little while in the US but after that they'll try everything to sweep you under the rug so they'll have only Americans in the business here.

  31. cla says – reply to this


    yeah she's gorgeous but looks and fame about the only things she got going for her
    shes extremely irritating on tv at least
    sorry, but it's true

  32. 32

    She doesn't want to change how she speaks, but she's going to try to change how she speaks. Thanks for that news flash.

  33. 33

    She is a cute little chav.
    Bring her.

  34. 34

    i love her accent.

  35. 35

    Re: NookiesWA – how stupid are you? american idol was a spin off from the hugely successful uk show 'pop idol'. pop idol uk was then replaced by x factor which has become the biggest show on tv in the uk and is watched online by huge audiences around the world. the format has been sold to over 20 countries with the u.s. being one of the latest to subscribe.

  36. 36

    Oh, Cheryl, don't be silly! American's love English accents. If anything, her accent is one of the things Americans will find the most endearing and charming about her.And when she's sings and dances, she will win them over even more. I think she will be fine.

  37. 37

    Her accent is not a problem. But nobody knows who she is and her singing and music and everything are too european, they are funny to americans

  38. 38

    I wouldn't dislike her because of her accent… the personality is what does her in, mate.

  39. 39

    This woman is absolutely fucking gorgeous. It makes me sick haha

  40. 40

    nobody here knows or cares who this woman is

  41. 41

    Re: shittin_condoms – They will soon enough. :)

  42. 42

    How can you not understand her??? I'm from So Cal and she enunciates just fine.

  43. 43

    I happen to love her Newcastle accent… but… she might be right… a lot of americans wouldn't understand her.

  44. 44

    yay, i can't stand her as a judge!! hopefully this means she drops out of the UK X Factor. She makes fun of the other judges, when two of her acts are i the bottom two she refuses to pick and when one is she sulks. As for the accent thing she doest need to worry its not nearly as annoying as Nadine's.
    People are talking about how Americans love British accents, not all are the same! technically I'm British but i have a completely different accent because i live in Northern Ireland, its like saying all American accents are the same.

  45. 45

    the only reason her solo career is so good over here is because shes a judge on the xfactor, everyone started to get interested in her when she first joined , if any the other ones from girls allowed were on the show, the same would of happened ,shes not even the best of singers out the bunch.

  46. 46

    She should be more concerned about her criminal record after punching a toilet attendant. Or her blatent racism and nepotism as a judge.

  47. 47

    Cheryl Cole is beautiful but she is talentless. She cannot sing and barely a mediocre dancer. Perez you need to stop the madness. You copy everything from the Brits you're a dam wannabe

  48. 48

    Re: gimpus maximus! – if cheryl is racist then she must have a serious conflict of interest when spending time with her best friend will.i.am and contestant alexandra burke who she mentored to win two years ago.
    spending time with her husband ashley 'black man' cole must have been more traumatic than her malaria.
    the only reason she never picked gamu for the finals is because she was not legally in the country and therefore facing risk of deportation.
    it's idiots like you playing the race card which fuels the true racists!

  49. 49

    she is so beautiful, I would love to look like her, but when she opens her mouth, it makes me cringe! Hopefully she can tone the accent down. However in the US no one would get that she has a geordie accent so i doubt that will be a problem. I hate the US southern accent, but wouldn't want a person to change it.

  50. 50

    I don't believe this bitch got the job on XFactor US. Nobody knows her and then American Idol has Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler yet Cowell is going to bring this no talent whore on his show to go up against legitimate entertainers?????? This bitch is a liar Her sources are liars and she' ll be in the UK continuing to irritate the hell out of people with her dumb ass.

  51. 51

    Just stay where you belong. Don't change your accent. Just don't bring it over here. Let an American citizen make the money that your taking away from an unemployed person. Get a job in your own country.

  52. 52

    Maybe she should be more concerned about getting an enema to get herself out of her own ass?

  53. 53

    Re: gimpus maximus!

    How is she a racist?
    Her soon to be ex husband is black.

  54. 54

    Re: cuckoo2 – Afraid you are incorrect here. If you watch her interview with Piers Morgan she openly admits to not knowing anything about Gamu's legal status when she decided to ditch her. BTW Gamu is still actually in Britain if you had'nt noticed and the X-factor final is next week. Proof that Cheryl goes for style? (If you can call it that) over substance. A true talentless chav.

  55. 55

    OMG.. why do you care about her? i dont even know who the fuck she is.. and if i were to go to the mall right now and ask everyone.. i bet they would say they don't know or care either.. no one cares about x-factor here anyway.. they watch idol. and why should they care about her? no one knows her.. no ones going to care.. she is not even that great.. i don't get the appeal.. i saw her performance and it's so boring.. and she dresses stupid and doesn't dance.. nothing.. it sucks.. so what she going to do here when there is more talented people here.. she's only famous in the UK.. why not sty there.. -.- america wont care..

  56. 56

    I don't think she'll make it over here. The reason she's hot in England is there she's a hometown girl - here she's just another pretty face. A dime a dozen. And not overly talented.

  57. 57

    I love her accent! Her accent is what makes her even more endearing. =)

  58. 58

    Re: Mrs Cloudatlas – i think if you check the legals you'll find the home office have already tried to deport gamu and her mother once. they have submitted an application for assylum claiming they will be shot if they return to zimbabwe, however gamu has felt safe enough to return to the country repeatedly since living in the uk to visit relatives so her claim is likely to be disputed for a long time. personally gamu was my favorite at the time but if she has no legal right to be in the country then she would not be entitled to a work visa and therefore not viable for a recording contract. the media reported this fact long before the final selections were announced, i'm sure the production company would have definitely checked a non-national's papers as do all british companies. i don't believe cheryl did not know. she was clearly told to drop her.

  59. 59

    She's a plastic surgery face and she used to resemble a monkey! Pretty odd if you ask me. Xfactor 2008 really shined a light on that view. Ugly to much prettier…Fake! She's dropping her albums here. I just cant' stand her!! She reeks bitch and fake. I used to like her but her last stint on UK's Xfactor pretty much did me in. Very self absorbed and she treats everyone as if they should all cater to her. It's pretty sickening to watch. Ew yeah, it's bad.

    She is called Chezza in the uk - its her nickname. And you say her music is too european only us brits like it, well Florence and the machine is british - far more european sounding music than cheryls yet americans seem to love Florence (i do too). FYI cheryl has never had anything close to plastic surgery, closest is hair extensions! people think shes a bithc because she is honest all the time - shows people dont know the difference between a bitch and a genuine person. hmmm i suppose your not warming to her because it is true she isnt well known out of the uk, its the same with american acts who come over to england who havent made themselves to huge a name, but this is cheryls chance to make a bigger name for herself and not just to be known as an ex-WAG - i think you should all atleast give her a chance cos u dont know what shes like and she isnt fake - cant be to be the UKs national swetheart!

  61. 61

    We can't wait to get rid of Chezza!!!! For G*d's sake take her! For a start she's so fake, she's already toned down her Geordie accent which is why people can understand her. There's no way you Americans would understand a thick Geordie accent - most UK people can't!

    For a laugh, watch the video of Cher pulling Chezza onto the stage with her. You think Chezza is meant to be a dancer?? Just take a look and piss yourself laughing! She's worse than my Grandmother! Will-i-am her mate and protector? I'm afraid it's everyone keeping each other in the news and selling records. Noone can alienate $imon Cowell - he's too important.

    Chezza stinks and the US is welcome to her.

  62. 62

    Stoopid , She can keep it ! IM FRENCH AND understand perfectly her geordie accent. So If American people can't understand her , then they're just being complete idiots ! (Even tho I don't think they are) .
